Team Roping involves two contestants roping the head and rear legs of a steer and then pulling in opposing directions. Needless to say, this results in many animal injuries.
At the 2007 National Finals Rodeo (NFR) in Las Vegas, NV a scene of unspeakable cruelty played out during the Team Roping event.
A steer had his leg twisted and broken by the contestants and he was then trampled by a horse. Despite the fact that this animal was obviously injured, his left rear leg was completely snapped and flopping around, the rodeo thugs continued to brutally rope the animal. The suffering steer could barely stand on his own, yet the rodeo thugs continued to torment him. All right in front of a worthless PRCA judge who does nothing to stop the contestants. Proving once again that the welfare of the animals takes a distant backseat to "entertainment" at rodeos.
Keep in mind that these guys are the "best of the best" in the world of rodeo. The NFR is the "Superbowl of Rodeo." We'll leave it to your imagination to consider the cruelty that happens during this event at the thousands of regular rodeos across the country with their talentless, greedy contestants.
